Production Description:
Starting from a classic abat-jour silhouette and playing with it:
disassembling it in plain sections, shuffling and putting them back in order,
 creating and defining light gaps. 
It's an ever changing object with an innate architectural nature. 
A simple figure, an idea, a lamp that illuminates and inspires creativity.
Cool lamp design made and crafted by MID, a design studio based in Ivrea, Italy.

TOFU is a recipe book with hopes to inspire healthy eating, especially in our hectic daily life where fast and unhealthy food is so prevalent. An exploration into the relationship of healthier lifestyle through Tofu; based upon the central concepts of white and emptiness or “wu”, which can be traced to the Buddhist Zen and Daoism ideas.
 White addresses the notion of “purity” which resonates both the aspect of tofu’s natural color as well as a healthier diet. Emptiness represents the meditative process of returning to the most fundamental aspects physically (body) and spiritually (mind). Retuning our body back to “purity” and “peace” requires space, and in order to do so; everything is stripped down to the most essential elements.
 Tofu is not merely a healthier ingredient but can also viewed as a way of life. 
Beautiful book designed by Cheryl Chong, a design student from Singapore.
